OBSERVATIONS: Last week, I played catch-up for three weeks worth of photos and stories, and I did something that made it so much easier to organize my photos and honestly, I can’t believe I wasn’t doing this before and yes, when this run-on sentence is finished and I take a breath, I’m going to tell you this remarkably simple thing that I did to make my Project Life SO much easier.
But first, my Week 41 pages. (And thank you for all your feedback on last week’s Project Life dilemma post!) Side note: I’m just going to document as I would, whether that’s one page or two, and break up my album if need be. Of course, I’m still not totally sure what I’m doing for next year, but that’s for another post.
This week, I decided to work in my Day Document cards and I think I like them. Here are two stories told on the 6 x 4 canvas they provide:
I decided to use the same digital paper I use in my Weekly Card, although just having a white background would have looked nice, too. I like how they work as digital files, but I really want to work them into more of my hybrid projects. Might even use these for my December Daily™ album (I’m doing it for my 2nd year!), in addition to some of Ali Edwards’ new card designs. I can see printing these very simply, and then trimming photos by hand to drop into the various spaces. (I also have Day Documents in a 6 x 8 format, as well.)
But enough about the cards, here’s a video tip with Mac users in mind. PC users, depending on how you save and organize your photos, can also benefit from this tip if your app allows date sorted folders. It’s all about using Smart Albums.
And that’s all I wrote for Week 42.
